    I drove through that intersection yesterday around 1:30 pm and the traffic light was out (it was flashing red). I wonder how long it took our esteemed leaders to take action to fix that light, and if this wreck occurred while it was still malfunctioning? Seems like everything on Blue Clay gets ignored, yet it is one of the most traveled roads for Sheriff’s Dept employees and other public leaders? I have yet to see anyone take action in removing the discarded couch that has been on the side of the road for more than a week now … dead animals … you name it.

    Yeah your right its the Sheriff’s offce job to clean up dead animals and furniture because the Sheriff’s office is going to strap a couch and or dead animal on the hood of the patrol car.

    Wilmington Fire Dept. did not respond to that wreck on Castle Hayne Rd. Units from New Hanover County Fire Sta. 11 responded. And the traffic lights was not the cause of the crash, the wreck occurred in front of Advance Auto Parts store.

    How you deduced that it is the sheriff’s responsibility to actually clean up the roadside trash is a bit puzzling. Perhaps you need to repeat your third grade reading comprehension class. The point that was made was that the Sheriff’s dept should at minimum contact the appropriate personnel to take care of issues which they are clearly aware of. It is hardly unreasonable to expect the sheriff’s dept to address public safety issues such as malfunctioning traffic lights, decaying animal carcasse and roadside hazards. For you to think otherwise leads one to question if you are the one littering the roadways and trashing up the town with your piggish ways.
